Updates from the September Board Meeting
A draft budget was established for 2023 to present to the community for discussion and vote at the annual meeting. Chief Harris requested the board consider the purchase of a new (used) fire truck. The budget was put on hold to gather more information on the details of purchasing the truck. This truck would take the place of three of our current trucks. A special meeting will be called prior to the Annaul Meeting to discuss the potential purchase and proposed budget.
Once the truck has been decided for or against, a budget proposal will be released for the public to review.
Financial Summary from August:
Checking balance start $75,326.49. Ending balance $54,309.06. Expenses $49,371.27
There was a large expense of $13,095.16 for truck repairs on 1302. This was reimbursed by an insurance payment. Savings balance: $75,010.59
